Indian Child Welfare

“The Quileute Tribe recognizes that its children are the Tribe’s greatest treasure and natural resource for the tribe.”

The Quileute ICW program is created to protect the best interests of Indian children and to promote the stability and security of their families through child protective services, child welfare services, foster and/or relative home recruitment and retention, preventive service and community education regarding child abuse and family preservation issues.

The staff manages and/ or offers supervision of dependency cases and manages intervention strategies in working with the family system. The staff works in conjunction with the Quileute Tribal Court, the Juvenile State Courts of Washington, the State Division of Children and Family Services in Forks, as well as with other Child Protection Service offices in Washington.
